Quick thoughts after driving a Tesla Model 3 for a day

General

So no, I am not lucky enough to own a Tesla, but I rented a model 3 the other day.

It’s so good, so much leapfrogging, can’t really even compare to the prior generation of cars. What an achievement. Really.

I felt so spoiled that when I finally had to recharge it, I was like: “Really? I have to get out of my car, use my hands and put that thing in that thing? Are we still living in the dark ages?” 😂

My drone pic of a solar farm in Rwanda featured in the USAID Act on Climate Calendar 2016

So Audrey Desiderato and I happened to be in Kigali in Rwanda. And we had a drone. We asked around to see if anyone knew of a solar installation that would look good from the air. And someone connected us with the first utility scale solar project in E Africa! This is the very first picture the world saw of this huge, beautiful solar installation that’s in the shape of Africa. This image has been used in many places – including now in the USAID #actonclimate 2016 calendar!
